Buffalo, N.Y.

Pre-Dinner Relaxation.

Earl and I are in Buffalo for the night. It’s the monthly bear night at Buddies II, with this month’s theme being “Hard Rock Bears”. It should prove to be an interesting evening.

I mentioned to Earl on the way here that it seems like the weather has pretty much sucked during our last several trips to Buffalo. Last month we arrived in the middle of the crazy October blizzard that dumped two feet of snow on the city and knocked out power and downed trees everywhere.

This time it’s just rain. Lots of rain.

Oh well, we’re looking forward to getting together with our friends Tim and Steve for dinner and then heading out for a fun night on the town. I think I’m going to skip the beer and head straight for the vodka and cranberry. Let’s see how I handle that.
